trust the irs to be politically neutral. can we now trust the irs with our most personal health care information? there has been an uproar about this in congress and a political reaction. speaker boehner says, he has serious concerns that the irs should be the obama, the obamacare chief enforcer. senator dean heller, a republican from nevada, he has announced legislation that is going to defund the hiring of irs agents to police obamacare. if that goes through, you defunded the irs, the police worker over obamacare, you have essentially driven a stake right into the heart of obamacare. so this development could go a long way. martha: yeah. you know, it may have come as somewhat of a surprise to the president this ig report. he claims that it did. but when you look into the timeline of this, this has been floating around for two years. so you had this position, this area that you wanted to make the most, you know your new health care initiative that you're rolling out, it is either just a political mistake or just incredibly dumb oversight to say, let's put this person in charge in, c
